Neighbours For Change! block party


  • What: Neighbours for Change block party
  • Where: Fernwood in front of the Fernwood Inn
  • When: This Sunday from 2-5pm
  • Why: This started 5 years ago in efforts to generate money for The Roger Colwill Fund for the Environment- a memorial fund in Roger Colwill’s name. He was the quintessential connector and promoter of building community in one’s neighbourhood. He also started the popular Green Drinks here in Victoria.

Over the years the money has gone to a variety of local green initiatives. Last year saw $6000 going to the Fernwood Neighbourhood Resource Group for their Kitchen Garden Project and money to RRU for a bursary.

There will be a live band, games for the kids, a gladiator game for the bigger kids, BBQ, marketplace, silent auction and beer garden. Oh yes, it’s a grand ol’ time.

This year organizers are also collecting books for Bella Bella as their library burned down in the recent fire.

Find out more on Twitter at @nfc_ferwood and www.neighboursforchange.wordpress.com. There is a Facebook event page too, of course!
